Excerpt: It seems like the Coolpix A was a spectacular failure for Nikon. Even though it's been discontinued for quite some time, it's still (as of August 2015) easy to find them new, in the silver version at least, for about a third of Nikon's original asking price.
Summary: Excellent point and shoot camera. Initial price offering was way too high for it's class. Takes an excellent photograph. It handles like a DSLR. Well made. . . extremely fast handling. It goes with me just about everywhere I go. . . . bgs.
Summary: A D7000 with a 18mm f2.8 (28mm FX equivalent) stuffed into a point and shoot body, build with metal... awesome!!! This camera is very light and portable. I slap a Nikon SB-300 (perfect match) on it for family functions, so I can bounce the light. Great for local day trips, functions, etc..
Summary: Compact and powerful camera. This camera is small enough and You can carry it everywhere. When you see the moment you can capture it. Built quality: very solid. Response time: quick as dslr. Image quality: as good as dslr
Summary: Bought this refurbished for $299 as a backup to my Nikon D800E for travel. Very happy so far. It has been performing well in both in regular conditions and low light (similar results as my Nikon D7000, which I can now leave at home). I find it quite easy to use.
This is my go to camera for snapshots due to its lightness but excellent picture quality

Summary: Been using this as my back up travel camera. This is my go to camera for snapshots due to its lightness but excellent picture quality. I am using an optical viewfinder and tone down the lcd which is nearly turned off.
Summary: First impressions are that I will miss an articulating screen and I am glad I bought one of the optical viewfinders the LCD has been impossible to use in bright sun due to the glare. The color of the jpg conversion and sharp focusing at F2.8 is a winner for such a small camera.
